OK. It’s about time these Date Rape Anthems got down to serious business:

Date Rape Anthem: 7 Year Bitch‘s “Dead Men Don’t Rape,” another in our anti-rape anthem series, obviously. Thanks to commenter Shannon Drury for the tip.

Relevant Lyrics: Oh hell let’s just hear all of them!

You ain’t got the right tellin’ me I’m uptight And I’m not obligated to give in cause you’re frustrated No, my revenge is death, cause  you deserve the best And I’m not turned on by your masculinity Dead men don’t rape

I don’t have pity, not a single tear For those who get joy from a woman’s fear I’d rather get a gun and just blow you away Then you’ll learn firsthand Dead men don’t rape

You’re getting sucked into society’s sickest Don’t go out alone you might get raped But not by a dead man ‘cuz Dead men don’t rape

You ain’t got the right tellin’ me I’m uptight Dead men don’t rape

So, What Do We Do With This One? “Dead Men Don’t Rape” endorses similar anti-rape tactics to one of our previous date rape anthems, the Raveonettes‘ “Boys Who Rape (Should All Be Destroyed)“: death and destruction for the world’s rapists. But there are aesthetic differences. While The Raveonettes’ dreamy indie pop serenades listeners with the polite suggestion that boys who rape “should” be destroyed, 7 Year Bitch’s rapist-elimination plan takes a more aggressive approach. Because vocalist Selene Vigil intends on shooting rapists dead before they can ever feign sexual “frustration” ever again. DEAD MEN DON’T RAPE.

So, which do you think is a more effective anti-rape message:

(a) The Raveonettes’ attempt to lull the listener into rape awareness.

(b)  7 Year Bitch scares-the-living-shit-out-of-you punk approach.

(c) Raveonettes until Memorial Day, 7 Year Bitch until Labor Day

(d) Neither. Violence is never the answer, mmkay?

(e) I don’t care about rape! Why am I still reading this blog!
